Proteasome inhibitors in Triple Negative Breast Cancer : strategies and mechanism
Weyburne, Emily author
"The proteasome inhibitors Carfilzomib (Cfz) and Bortezomib (Btz) are used successfully to treat multiple myeloma, but have not shown clinical efficacy in solid tumors. In vitro, Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) cells have been found to be sensitive to proteasome inhibition. In this thesis, we demonstrate that clinically achievable inhibition of the [beta]5 site of the proteasome by Cfz and Btz does not result in loss of viability of TNBC cell lines. We use site-specific inhibitors and genetic inactivation of [beta]1 and [beta]2 via CRISPR to demonstrate that inhibiting a second site of the proteasome, particularly the [beta]2 site, sensitizes cells to Btz and Cfz in vitro and in vivo. Inhibiting both [beta]5 and [beta]2 suppresses the activation of the transcription factor Nrf1 and prevents the recovery of proteasome activity through induction of new proteasomes. We also use kinase inhibitors and RNAi to define a JNK/ATF3/NOXA pathway that regulates cell death in proteasome inhibitor-treated basal-like TNBC cell lines. Overall, these findings provide a rationale for the development of dual [beta]5 and [beta]2 inhibitors, and for a more thorough investigation of the role of JNK in cell death following proteasome inhibitor treatment".

Equilibrium analysis of channel recovery from an extreme flood
Doyle, Helen author
"River channels progress through cycles of disturbance and subsequent recovery presumably to equilibrium conditions. Traditionally the recovery of a channel has been quantified by evaluating whether pre-disturbance widths have been re-established. However, this approach ignores the possible covariation of channel parameters that allows for non-unique channel configurations. Here I test the use of a covariate recovery analysis in which an equilibrium channel is defined as one with constant sediment flux in the downstream direction. Sediment flux is quantified by assuming that it is a function of dimensionless shear stress (Shields number), which, in equilibrium bedload channels, is observed to be approximately invariant and equal to the critical value for initiation of sediment motion at bankfull flows. I analyze the channel response to and recovery from Tropical Storm Irene (August 2011) using five years of topographic and sediment size measurements from 15 sites on gravel-bedded streams in New England. The direction of change in these measurements at different sites was variable, but the watershed-averaged changes in geometry and grain size as a result of the flood were not statistically significant. While many reaches were observed to be out of equilibrium (Shields number not equal to the critical value) post-Irene, on average, using Shields number as a metric, the watershed was not forced out of equilibrium. The watershed did eventually experience a common direction of geomorphic change due to changed boundary conditions. Landslides activated during the storm provided a chronic source of sediment post-Irene, leading to fining of channel bed sediment throughout the study region two years after the storm. This fining resulted in the watershed being significantly out of equilibrium, but only under the assumption that Shields number must return to the pre-disturbance value. If we assume that the pre-Irene spatial variation in Shields number between sites is indicative of the temporal variation at a site, the watershed was never out of equilibrium during the five-year study period. Effective use of the Shields number for analyzing equilibrium and recovery will require a more complete understanding of the factors that define equilibrium at a given site. "

Assembly dynamics of the septin cytoskeleton
Bridges, Andrew author
"Septins are a widespread family of eukaryotic proteins that function in organizing cytokinesis, cell polarity and cell shape. To carry out their role in these processes, septins form filaments and complex higher-order structures that associate with the plasma membrane. These higher-order structures, which are tightly regulated in time and space, serve as scaffolds for interacting proteins, influence the actin and microtubule cytoskeletons, and may act as diffusion barriers for proteins embedded in membranes. Septin genes are essential in many eukaryotic cell types and septin misregulation is associated with a myriad of human diseases. Despite their clear biomedical and ecological importance, only a small amount is known about septin form and function. Prior to this thesis, one area of septin biology that was almost completely unexplored was septin dynamics. Do septins polymerize from one or both ends? Do they polymerize on membranes or in the cytoplasm? What properties of the plasma membrane do septins recognize? Here, we addressed these questions by pairing live cell imaging with reconstitution base approaches. We found that septins grow by a dynamic assembly process that differs substantially from other cytoskeletal systems. This includes growth from both ends by a process that involves frequent polymer annealing and fragmentation on the plasma membrane. We then went on to show that septins recognize micron-scale plasma membrane curvature, providing them with the ability to sense cell shape changes. Septins use this geometric information to form higher-order structures that organize processes that take place at these curved sites, including cell division and cell polarity. Overall, this thesis begins to shed light on the exciting dynamics of the septin cytoskeleton and how septin dynamics relate to their cellular functions. Along the way, novel imaging and reconstitution approaches were developed that will continue to be utilized to further our understanding of the septin cytoskeleton. "

State representation for problem solving using reinforcement learning
Cheng, Zhao, author
"This research focuses on learning space representation using reinforcement learning. In order to reduce the complexity of an agent's learning space, two approaches are utilized: state abstraction and hierarchical state representation. Using state abstraction, a framework is proposed for satisficing state abstraction - one that automatically reduces state dimensionality by eliminating useless or irrelevant state dimensions via state-reward relevance testing. The state abstraction approach is effective in improving the learning performance when the scale of the problem is limited. In order to solve large scale problems, we use the Q-tree algorithm, a hierarchical state representation algorithm that concurrently learns task policy and state representations. The Q-tree algorithm splits the state space into subspaces by evaluating state space separability, a feature based on the difference in Q-values for transitions that occur from each visited state. Based on these learning space complexity reduction algorithms, we have developed computational frameworks for modeling insight problem solving. Insight problem solvers must overcome pre-potent responses and learn to restructure the state representation in order to reach a solution. The Q-tree leaning framework models pre-potent knowledge representation and subsequently restructures the pre-potent knowledge to reach a solution to an insight problem. The algorithm is evaluated on the nine-dot problem and the reverse-reward problem and results show that the dynamics of incubation and insight can be elicited. A multi-level problem solving model is presented as a more general framework for modeling insight problem solving. In this model, the state space of the problem domain is organized by a hierarchy of subsets of the original state space, and policies are learned under a subset of the state space using the Q-tree algorithm. A variant of the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test - a cognitive test of set shifting - is successfully modeled by this framework. Demonstration of insight problem solving using RL algorithms is conducted using a robot platform with constrained memory and computational capability. Additionally, the robot learning experiments start with visual percepts, as the platform perceives the environment information from a camera. Finally, the thesis investigates application of the multi-level model to observational learning, in which a robot observes a human perform the card sorting task and learns which rule is in effect through observation."

Insights into transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation by the MYC oncoprotein
Posternak, Valeriya, author
"Despite the fact that MYC has been studied for over 30 years, there is much that still remains unclear about its mechanism of action both transcriptionally and post-transcriptionally. MYC regulates a myriad of processes including cell cycle progression, proliferation, growth, differentiation, apoptosis, and metabolism, among others. The MYC gene is tightly regulated in normal cells; however, dysregulation of MYC expression leads to aberrant control of various activities and malignant cellular transformation. Classically, MYC is well- known for its role as a pleiotropic transcription factor. While the molecular mechanisms responsible for MYC-mediated transcriptional activation have been sufficiently characterized, recent publications have challenged the well-accepted dogma surrounding MYC's role in transcriptional regulation. MYC's role as a global transcriptional amplifier has been substantiated by multiple groups, however, the mechanism by which MYC promotes RNA Polymerase II (RNA Pol II) dependent transcriptional elongation remains elusive. Independently of transcriptional regulation, MYC has been described to modulate translation of specific mRNA targets by augmenting mRNA cap methylation. While a number of targets have been identified, the global effect of MYC on mRNA cap methylation and the specific MYC-mediated mechanism responsible for enhancing mRNA cap methylation have not been described in full. The extent to which MYC-mediated mRNA cap methylation affects translation, protein synthesis, signaling activity, and cellular transformation also requires further exploration. Herein, I provide novel evidence for MYC-induced modulation of P-TEFb activity through TIP60-mediated acetylation of Cyclin T1, which can amplify transcriptional elongation. Furthermore, this thesis expands on the global effect of MYC on mRNA cap methylation and identifies new key players necessary for MYC to augment cap methylation. I present data that support MYC-mediated mRNA cap methylation of a novel subset of transcripts within the Wnt/[beta]-catenin signaling pathway and propose that MYC modulates this process through TRRAP cofactor complexes."

Behavioral and neural responses to affectively salient cues : the influence of perceived stress and control
Taylor, James M., author
"Though the complexity of emotional responding has created a challenge for researchers (LeDoux, 1996), attempts to investigate how emotional salience influences responding at both the neural and behavioral level continues to shed light on the pervasive effects of these events on daily functioning. Much of this work has also led to hypotheses proposing that many of these events contain information beyond their emotion-based label that can guide cognition and behavior in very specific ways (e.g. Whalen, 1998). The work presented in this thesis attempts to determine how these additional components (i.e. factors not accounted for by the dimensions of valence and arousal), are able to differentially drive neural and behavioral responses. This work will start with an investigation of whether fearful and angry expressions, to our mind naturally conditioned predictive cues, can differentially guide attention and neural responding. This work has the potential to support the notion that other dimensions, namely attentional diffusion vs. focus, can help explain observed behavioral differences between responses observed in response to these two negatively valenced emotional displays. I then complement this initial work by addressing the role of perceived stress and control on behavioral and neural responses to experimentally conditioned predictive cues. Importantly, these studies investigate the role of perceived stress and control on anticipated negative outcomes as well as anticipated positive outcomes. Interestingly, we hypothesized that anticipated positive outcomes could exert more pressure on participants to perform well, but predicted this would only be the case for participants reporting high perceived stress. This work will offer suggestions to guide future work that investigates the influence of affectively salient cues on behavioral and cognitive processes."

Precision medicine approaches for tumors with loss of neurofibromin 1 or RAS pathway deregulation
Allaway, Robert James, author
"Precision medicine is defined as the use of individualized patient data to identify the most effective possible therapeutic approaches. In oncology, this includes the use of patient tumor data to inform clinical strategies. However, there are currently few precision medicine approaches for many tumor types, including tumors with oncogenic RAS or loss of the neurofibromin 1 (NF1) tumor suppressor. RAS dysregulation is observed in many tumor types, including pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, lung adenocarcinoma, and colorectal cancer. Heterozygous germline mutation of NF1 causes neurofibromatosis type 1, which results in a predisposition to tumors such as optic pathway gliomas and malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors. Furthermore, NF1 loss occurs in sporadic cancers, including glioblastoma, ovarian cancer, and melanoma. NF1 loss can occur as the result of mutation, excessive proteasome-meditated degradation of the protein, or microRNA repression of the transcript, among other possibilities. There are a limited number of existing treatments for tumors with RAS mutations or NF1 loss. As such, novel therapeutic approaches are needed for these tumors. The present work aims to address several challenges to precision medicine in RAS/NF1 dysregulated tumors. First, we address the need for novel therapeutic approaches by evaluating the mechanism of action of Y100, a small molecule that is synthetic lethal with loss of NF1. Second, we address the challenge of identifying NF1 status in tumors using a machine-learning approach. Finally, we address the lack of personalized tumor models for patients with rapidly progressing disease by evaluating the use of the CDK9 inhibitor, dinaciclib, in a novel patient-derived xenograft model of PDAC".

Can self-regulation be improved? : an examination of neural and behavioral evidence
Chen, Pin-Hao, author
"Although the self-regulatory capacity of humans is superior to other animals, failures in self-regulation are common. Self-regulation failures can cause several serious problems in modern society, such as obesity, sexual control problems, and drug addiction. As such, researchers have enthusiastically attempted to identify effective means to improve self regulatory ability across domains. This thesis therefore aims to examine whether self-regulation ability can be enhanced in a domain-general fashion. Using a multimodal neuroimaging approach as well as an experience-sampling method, the present studies investigate the effectiveness of different self-regulatory enhancement techniques as well as their underlying neural mechanisms. Study 1 examines whether glucose consumption can modulate the neural reactivity to negative emotional scenes. Study 2 tests whether inducing self-awareness can change the relative engagement between the FP and reward system. Study 3 compares the effectiveness of a domain-general and a domain-specific training in reducing reward responsivity and daily food desires. Study 4 explores whether mindfulness-meditation training can lower reward responsivity and daily food desires. Study 5 creates an innovative smartphone self-regulatory training application and tests whether this app can help people lose weight. Study 6 investigates whether white matter integrity between executive control and reward regions predicts long-term success in dieting. Findings from these studies suggest that an effective self-regulatory training needs to be domain-specific. An effective domain-specific training can significantly lower the strength of impulse and enhance the communication between the brain system involved in cognitive control and the brain system involved in reward processing. Collectively, this thesis sheds light on understanding the neural mechanisms of self-regulatory training. Eventually, this thesis may inspire future applications of self-regulatory improvement techniques to clinical settings, such as treating pathological obesity and drug addiction."
